So you’ve been assigned a complex,
poorly defined project concept
So now what?

Nothing is worse (or better) for a senior project manager or analyst than being handed a project that is: strategic, very large, and way outside your comfort zone in complexity.

These projects will sometimes roll around the halls of big companies for months while they struggle to gain sufficient momentum and clarity to really move forward with a sense of purpose and direction.

  • Let’s say one of these career-bruisers/-builders is yours?
  • What do you do next?

This session is about the tactics of early-stage project intake and clarification – getting clarity efficiently.

Learning objectives:

  1. Inside the project intake process – why is intake so dysfunctional?
  2. The action plan – simple steps that drive project clarity and milestones that deliver benefit.
  3. Targeted result – time tested deliverables that work

A Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
Overview Webinar

The creation of a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for a project is often a misunderstood if not a daunting project activity.

Project teams often misunderstand the purpose and uses of the WBS confusing it with the Project Plan or Project Schedule.

The WBS and the Project Schedule do have a relationship, but they are not interchangeable deliverables.

During this Solutions Cube Group webinar: De-Mystifying The WBS, attendees will gain an understanding on the characteristics of a WBS and understand how this project deliverable is vital blueprint for reducing project failures associated with missed or misunderstood project requirements.

Solutions Cube Group’s webinars address many relevant project issues and close the gap between project theory and practical application.

In this overview level recorded Webinar participants learn about:

  • Characteristics of well defined Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
  • The relationship between a WBS and a Project Schedule
  • Methods for progressively elaborating on the content in the WBS
  • Components that help ensure the WBS developed for the project is complete
  • Clearly differentiating between “What” outcome is being built as a result of the project versus “How” to build it

Join them for this presentation and learn about the uses of the Work Breakdown Structure and how to ensure it clearly represents the full scope of the project effort.
